EU keeps up pressure for Israeli settlement freeze – Israel News, Ynetnews

The European Union pressed the Israeli government on Monday to freeze settlement building, offered the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip more aid and urged Israel to open Gaza’s border crossings more fully to increase trade.

 

EU foreign ministers “noted with regret” Israel’s failure to extend a moratorium on construction of Jewish settlements, and took a stand at odds with the decision by the United States to drop efforts to persuade Israel to freeze settlement building.
